Speedbump 's Thoughts:

Another outfit picture repost. :( Sorry if you see this twice, but it’s been busy around here, and I really liked this outfit anyways. Besides, more pictures! So it’s not completely a vanity post.

Though this outfit was kind of specifically put together for a CoedUgly post, I ended up liking it a lot. The colors go nicely together, and I decided that I look like a mash-up of Daphne from Scooby Doo, Blair Waldorf, and a girl scout. :D Not a bad thing. I think. The colors make the outfit a bit cartoony, which is a lot of fun… hence, the Asian girl peace sign hand gesture.

Also, a sillyface photo that was supposed to be an outtake, but my face was so goofy looking that I really couldn’t help it! :D

The beret is one of the vintage ones I talked about in my previous post. It makes me think of the military (green berets, and whatnot), but I love it anyways. It’s necessary for the cold weather here in Berkeley (though it was sunny out today! Hence the relatively good photo!!)

The bag is a recent acquisition that I love very much. I know I’m jumping on the vintage blogger bandwagon by getting one, but I really love the look. Actually, even before basket bags were popular in the blogosphere, I thrifted myself a nice little picnic basket, which became too inconvenient to use as a handbag because of the way the handles work. Which reminds me… must go on more picnics this summer!!!

The blouse is more awesome and ruffly than you can tell. I foresee myself wearing it a lot because it’s kind of the perfect little neutral blouse, and I really need more neutral pieces in my wardrobe. It’s vintage 50s and sheer with all these little tiny pleats and lace, and rhinestone buttons!! You just can’t go wrong with those. :D

As for the store that I talked about opening up… my time is being eaten up by other things, alas. But I might list a few things soon here & on Etsy. I really do have too much clothing, and it’s more for lack of storage space that I must rid myself of it.

One last selfish thing: because the thought of being on Lookbook’s “Hot” page makes me kind of giddy, if you’re on Lookbook, and you like this outfit, please hype me here . Really appreciate it. <3

I agree with the analogy of a mash-up of Daphne from Scooby Doo, Blair Waldorf, and a girl scout. I'd love to be a mashup of all those things :P

:) According to Helen (our lovely Chictopia CEO), I apparently look like an Asian Blair Waldorf most days, haha.
